americans in community colleges. that's real change. i want us to live up to this country's legacy. we're not just building cars again, we're building better cars. cars that by the middle of the next decade will go twice as far on a gallon of gas. that kind of innovation, that kind of forward-thinking, we don't have to restrict it just to the auto-industry. i want to bring it back on all kinds of things. we've got thousands of workers building wind turbines all across the country. profits, when they're making money hand-over-fist, i want to support energy jobs of tomorrow which will cut oil costs in half, help our environment and our national growth. i want to reward companies that are creating those jobs in virginia. that's the future i see to this country. as long as i'm commander in chief,we'll pursue our energies with the strongest military the world has ever known. and virginia carries more than its load when i comes to defending this country. and we are grateful to this state. but we also understand to be strong, it's time to use some of the savings from winding down two wars to
with us tonight. with just about 50 hours until election day, the candidates are making their closing arguments like never before and in the battleground state of ohio, president obama is definitely on the move. the latest nbc maris poll has the president up. he is pushing hard about the dishonest ad about jeep moving jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried asking if their jobs were being shipped to china. you've heard about this. everybody heard about this? and the reason they're worried is because governor romney is running ads saying that jeep is shipping jobs to china. there's only one problem. it's not true. >> it's just not ohio where president obama is surging. in 22 new polls of battleground states, the president leads in 19 of them. the obama campaign is taking nothing for granted, however. and joe biden put the campaign into perspective. >> i want to remind you, this is the end of daylight savings time tonight. it's mitt romney's favorite time of the year because he gets to turn the clock back. he wants to t
panel. ana marie cox is here with us in new york. richard wolffe is vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com and joy reed. joy, this has been going on for six years. we're still trying to understand who mitt romney is. we've employed psychologists, nobody knows. do you know who he is? >> he's the guy opening for the marshall tucker band in ohio. what i've come to the conclusion of is mitt romney is who he said he is. he's a businessman. i believe he's in the business of sales and marketing. that means whatever crowd or audience is in front of him at that moment, mitt romney is for whatever they're for. if you change your mind, he'll change it with you. >> so he has no core convictions. >> i don't agree with that. i think he has one strong core belief which is mitt romney should be president of the united states and do whatever it takes to make that happen. >> so he has the conviction of ambition. republicans seem to be talking down their expectations today. talking about the polls, talking about difficulties with the hurricane and the storm and so on. isn't the simple fact that
-organized fringe of radical birthers, the election of a black president doesn't tell us much about the structural barriers that continue to face the vast majority of black citizens. it doesn't tell us much about the narrow arena of electoral arena for black candidates. maybe you've noticed there's not one african-american in the united states senate. we're called 2008 with an open seat race. unpopular wars, a crushing -- a nation that was crashing in terms of the economy and exhausted the with the incumbent george w. bush opened the door wide for a democrat to win. throughout american history, race has been a disqualifier even if favorable, political circumstances. not in 2008. overall, american voters did not -- this is meaningful if imperfect progress. in three days, we'll learn if america's first black president will be re-elected. the conditions are very different this time around. he is the incumbent, the economy is still limping and it may be harder generally to win reelection of our previous 42 presidents. only 16 were elected to two terms. if america doesn't choose president obama again,
did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this was unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> you know, chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it, i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say, yes, they were bought off that, obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victims who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant, and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying, hey, don't let the car

"the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. with less than four hours to election day, this thing is going down to the wire. this is "the ed show." exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit different than 2008, isn't it? you know, in a way, this victory was brought to you by the radical governors, who spent the last three years stumping all over the middle class in their states. there's something all of these governors have in common, i'm talking about john casey in ohio, chris christie in new jersey, ric

"the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. last night was a big victory for the american middle class, a victory for workers, a victory for progressives, and you know what, a real bad night for the billionaires. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> whether you pounded the pavement or picked up the phone. whether you held an obama sign or a romney sign, you made your voice heard. and you made a difference. >> there will be four more years for president obama, and no one can deny it. >> i think this is premature. >> tonight, the great victory for the american middle class, with e.j. dionne and richard wolffe. the secrets to victory with john nichols. the massive win for women, with terry o'neill. the diverse coalition that won it all with annette in florida and the great nina turner in ohio. and the boots on the ground have prevailed over citizens united, with leo gehrard of the steelworkers. >> we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection o
for being with us. "politicsnation" starts now. >> thanks, chris, i'm al sharpton. this is a special edition of sunday it sunday "politicsnation." we are coming to you live tonight from democracy plaza from new york's rockefeller center. it'll be our headquarters through election day. we have two days to go. here's where the race stands. new nbc news wall street journal poll just out today shows president obama with 48% of the national vote. mitt romney has 47%. a dead heat. the new york times, 538 blog says if the election were held today, the president would win reelection with 307 electoral votes. mitt romney would get 231. 270 is the magic number needed to winter white house. the times blog gives the president an 85% chance of winning the election. romney has a 15% chance. that's the highest percentage the president has had since october 3rd, the day of the first debate. and as of tonight, more than 29 million people are have already vote pepd but the lines as long as six hours in florida have led to a major development in that state. and we will have a lot more on that later. in these f
've got chuck todd joining us and howard fineman. i have to give you some anecdotal information which has given me good information. i have a brother charlie who always votes for the winner. he called me an hour ago and said it's obama. because that's who he's going to vote for. don't laugh, chuck. when you get an absolute provable leading indicator you will never let it go either. so i've got one. i've looked at all the numbers today. all the numbers seem to point to a mild victory for obama. none seem to point for a victory for romney. what do you know so far? >> i can tell you the body language of the campaign, talking to the two campaigns. the obama folks don't think they're trailing in a single battleground state and this is the day before the election. that's not to say they think they win every one of the nine battlegrounds if you include north carolina in that larger nine. that's how confident they are. that's how much they believe that they have done enough of what i would call the building the flood walls, if you will, with the early vote and the absentee. and what their turn in
and shortly after used his concession speech to call for national unity. >> i so i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader and so ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. >> just after 1:00 a.m. president obama took the stage in chicago and in an eeb lex cycle that has parsed every line, and smile, it was clear he saved his most powerful oratory for the very end. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than a collection of red states andstates we are and forever will be the united states of america. and together with your help and god's we will continue our journey forward. >> reverend al, the president rode into office on a wave of hope and change, but i wonder after last night, is the change really, perhaps, for the second term? could the president have a mandate to really change the way >> i think a lot of it will be the t
hour is all about us. it's ladies night. good evening. i'm melissa harris-perry. i'm kog to you from our studio in democracy plaza right here in new york city. the last time we were here, not here, that was this morning, but here on the cusp of an election, we reached the culmination of an extraordinary year. not because our country was about to elect the first african-american president. we must remember 2008 was a year a woman almost won the democratic nom face for president of the united states. and though some of us may want to for get sarah palin her place as the first ever woman in the vp slot on the republican ticket represents another historic milestone for women that year. in 2008 nancy pelosi was making history as the first woman to serve as speaker of the house. four women, 2008 felt like a moment. i mean, president obama may have been the reason that there was no president hillary clinton, but he was also the reason that the united states has been repped on the world stage for the past four years by secretary of state hillary clinton. and president obama nominated elaine
you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today we're on the other side of history. last night we saw a statement election in america and it opens up a huge opportunity for democrats to move this country forward. this was the scene in chicago, the moment president obama supporters were told he secured enough electoral votes to be re-elected as the 44th president of the united states. president obama is not naive about his place in history. the victory was a repudiation of the right wing agenda. also an affirmation of the president's vision for the country. >> what makes america exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit different than 2008, isn't it? you know, in a
. joins me now is u.s. senator sherrod brown. we have nina turner coming up later on. >> i love watching nina on your show. >> i get you passionate ohio folks mixed up. >> that's okay. >> sherrod brown with us and mary kay henry, president of the services employment international union who met with the president today. i would be remiss, mary kay, if i did not ask you right off the bat, did the president say he was not going to budge on taxes? he did it once in 2010, and he won't do it again? >> the president was incredibly serious and focused and really relieved to hear that we are going to keep our ground game going, that our working people and community members all across this country are ready to have this fight and want to have the middle class tax cuts permanently extended. that's the action that congress can take right now. and then work together to make sure that the wealthiest americans pay their fair share so we can get back to work. >> well, did he tell the group that he was not going to budge on taxes? >> he was crystal clear about that, yes. >> so you're confirming the huffi
that person will lead us? >> aing thi think that depends determination of citizens across the country that are outside the normal teams that operate in the two campaigns. we have a professional middle class in america. they're stoking the fires of fear. as i go across the country, people want the country to work together again. if a republican wins, they want that republican to work with the democrats and vice versa. i was out in the great plains. that's a part of the country doing very well. they didn't do any of the dumb things with subprime lending, agriculture is booming and unemployment in north and south dakota are under 5%. if they can make it work, why can't they make it work in washington? we need more of that to move the country forward. we're still playing by 20th century rules in this country in almost everything we do and we're in the 21st century. what's so striking is we're all in awe of silicon valley and all it produces for us. this transformative technology. what's the mantra of silicon valley? be disruptive. don't be afraid to challenge convention. find new ways to
. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago tonight, it was actually the night after the '08 presidential election. we voted november 4th. we vote november 6th this time. so november 5th was the night after barack obama had just walloped john mccain in that year's presidential election. you remember the electoral college map. the total 365 electoral votes for obama and only 173 for john mccain. barack obama won that presidential election with almost 100 electoral votes to spare. after that emotional victory on this night four years ago, the country started to appreciate what had just happened in that historic election toward what was going to happen next. now that we had barack obama as not just a candidate or as the winner, but as the next president, as the successor of two terms of george bush. >> elections have consequences. elections are not just the end of the campaign. the concession speech,s victory speech, these are the sounds of a starting pistol for what now begin. it's not just about winning a contest. we're hiring someone to start work. elections have cons
american, where justice is reachable and close to reality because of what we, all of us, do tomorrow. and, boy, that's "hardball" for now. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. i'm al sharpton. we're live tonight from democracy plaza in new york's rockefeller center. it's one day until millions stream to the polls to decide the future of the presidency and the future of this country. after months of campaigning, this election is down to a few fleeting hours. there's so much focus right now in the details for this close race. where are the independents? what's the latest from ohio? who can turn out their voters? but let's step back for a moment. this election is about much more than the details. what's at stake is a big -- very, very big thing. it's about protecting decades of progressive ideas. it's about protecting the security that fdr social security program has given generations of americans. it's about preserving lbj's medicare program with 50 million seniors depend on. it's about depending the president
to us. ohio at the center of the political universe. while this state may in fact be important, it wasn't the first to vote. for the first time ever and with its lowest turnout in almost 50 years, a tie this morning in tiny dixville notch. they cast five votes for barack obama, five for governor romney. a few hours south in manchester, the governor ends his campaign. these last months of our campaign have seen the gathering of strength of a real movement across this country. it's evident in the size of these crowds like this tonight. my goodness. [ applause ] and i understand that there are a few thousand people outdoors who couldn't get in, too. >> after voting near boston this morning, the governor hits the road again, thanking campaign workers in pennsylvania and ohio, two key states he hopes to win. president obama wakes up this morning back home in chicago. he plans to continue an election day tradition. a game of basketball before watching results tonight. last night, his final campaign rally ever in iowa where he first won four years ago. >> as long as there's a child anywhere in

behind their civilians. the terrorists targets are children and they use their own children as human shields. but if stronger military action proves necessary to stop the barrage of rockets, israel will not hesitate to do what is necessary to defend our people. >> secretary of state hillary clinton is heading to jerusalem to help secure a truce before israel launches a ground invasion. u.n. secretary-general ban ki moon is also there and nine arab leaders are showing solidarity with the palestinians. a big change since the last serious fighting four years ago. earlier today at the u.n., the united states blocked a joint statement condemning the conflict because it didn't mention the root cause which the u.s. says is hamas missile attacks. nbc's martin fletcher is in tel aviv and martin, if there's a talk of cease-fire, what is israel doing dropping leaflets? >> reporter: that's a good question. israel actually -- it has not said that the cease-fire is as far advanced as the arabs have. israel is insisting on a long-term solution and they haven't got that yet. so what they're doing is
'm preparing for a storm surge of some sort. what happened to the other guy who used to host? >> the other guy, i think, is doing okay. as far as my death, destruction and devastation forecast, i think they'll be back very soon. anchor guy bri, you'll be just fine. no need to be nervous.

million viewer, i would have been du dumbfounded. >> michael, thanks for joining us. we have had a good time arguing and discussing things occasionally agreeing on things but often not. let me ask you about that republican world view. i wonder what color the sky is. how did they see this election the way rasmussen pollsters would see it, basically a romney romp? how did they get it so wrong? >> i think there was a feeding into a mythology that somehow the country would categorically reject the president because we had, that the country would somehow say to itself, you know, we can't live with this new land of big government health care, big government spending, et cetera, because we can't. and that's fine. the problem was in articulating to the american people why we can't live with those things, why those things are bad, and instead, as you have noted many times on this program, we got w waylaid by conversations about women's bodies and abortion and things that didn't go to the nub of what was moving the electorate, and i think right now newt is absolutely right. there's going to requi
